Support for ProStep Features

ProStep EDMD is an ECAD-MCAD format supported by CircuitWorks.

CircuitWorks supports the following ProStep features:

  • When you use Build Model to build a ProStep EDMD file for SOLIDWORKS, CircuitWorks identifies individual holes by storing each hole's unique ID in the SOLIDWORKS software.

    When you move holes in SOLIDWORKS, the stored IDs are used to accurately report the move in the ECAD file.

  • You can right-click a change in the CircuitWorks Changes tree and select Show Report to display the EDMD Report dialog box.

    This dialog box shows the history of the change. It includes a table that lists:

    • The baseline.
    • Individual changes made to the file, who made the changes, and when the changes were made.
    • Change notes included in replies sent to CircuitWorks from ECAD.
  • A new EDMD Info section of the Revision Properties panel displays details about a selected change and the ECAD response to the change.
  • Added file types in the Save As dialog box let you manually save ProStep idx and idz baseline files to ProStep 1.2, 2, and 3.
